    Default sddm update breaks login profile picture

    earlier today (30 Aug) sddm updated (as part of a plasma update) to 0.14.0-62.1 (kcm_sddm 5.7.4-72.1).
    Since that time my profile picture no longer appears in sddm when logging in.
    As you can see here - the profile pic is still in place in systemsettings5 . . .


    resetting or adding a new pic makes no change.

    indeed, in systemsettings5 the startup / shutdown > sddm module seems broken (or is it supposed to look like this?)



    anybody else seeing this? Any ideas please. . .

    Perhaps the new enable avatars option?

    perhaps . . . but how might I configure this option to get my avatar back? I can't find anything in systemsettings5

    Set it manually (as root) in /etc/sddm.conf ... systemsettings module likely not reflective of current sddm changes yet

    As an aside, this appears to be yet another case of packages being made available for Leap before they find there way into TW ... seems to happen a lot more frequently then one would expect for a rolling release ...

    Hi farcusnz,

    I'm having this same problem. That is my SDDM login avatar photo is gone and I'm getting a blank SDDM login theme configuration screen too. Have you or anybody else found a solution yet?

    KDE Plasma version = 5.7.4
    KDE Frameworks version = 5.25.0
    kcm_sddm version = 5.7.4-72.1

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    As already hinted at by Tyler_K....did you try this yet?

    Yes, I have copied a photo to both /usr/share/sddm/faces/gordon.face.icon (set to -rw-r--r--) and ~/.face.icon (set to -rwxr--r--) as discussed in that arch wiki and it doesn't fix anything. Also, that wiki does not offer any solution for the SDDM login theme configuration screen being totally blank as described by farcusnz in the first post of this thread. That is, settings screen located at:

    System settings > Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM)

    presents a completely blank screen without any information about the login theme.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Yes, my comment was limited to the avatar (not the themes). I guess it's all work in progress for now.

    I have successfully added an avatar as described in the Archwiki page. I have
    Code:
    [Theme]
    Current=breeze
    CursorTheme=breeze_cursors
    FacesDir=/home/dean
    with dean.face.icon PNG file in my home directory.

    Hi deano_ferrari,

    That worked to get the avatar photo back on the login screen. Thanks!... However, I still would like to know why the SDDM login theme configuration screen is totally blank as described by farcusnz in the first post of this thread. I guess its probably some issue with using the Frameworks 5 repo....

    Thanks again,

    Gordon
